Designed by famed Swiss architects Le Corbusier and his cousin, Pierre Jeanneret, Villa Savoye represents a modern architectural masterpiece open to the public. The Savoye family commissioned the house as a country retreat in 1928, and it was finished in the early 1930s. The home became Corbusier's best-known building from the era, as it exerted an enormous influence on the international modernism architectural movement through its design. During World War II, Nazis sent the family to a concentration camp and used the house for storage. After the war, the French government took ownership; it was designated a historical monument in 1965.

Villa Savoye, designed by famous architecture Le Corbusier, is an inspirational for the subsequent architect. If you want to know more about modernism in architecture, you should visit this site. You can visit the yard for free and 8€ for visiting inside of the building. To go there, you should take a train towards out of Paris (approximately 1 h.)

Great experience of iconic architecture. However the place seemed to be not looked after very well. Plus there wasn't any original Corb's furniture inside which was a downside. But overall a great experience. It's outside of the city, and a bit of a walk from the train station. Free entry for Europeans under 26, otherwise a 9 euro entry if I remember correctly. Also great info stands about russian constructivism outside .

This milestone in the history of architecture must be experienced. The lack of furniture is unfortunate, but the advantage is that you can go around in the rooms everywhere. What I also regret, are the exhibition boards outside, as they disturb the entrance view of the building. Some restoration work is already around the corner, but this does not take away the joy of being here and experiencing the spirit of innovation.
